Today we're publishing you a review by Joshua, who just joined the team - he brought a special grading system with him, check out his author page for more details!

The Punch Signature is a four-cigar collection, handcrafted in Honduras. It includes these frontmarks: Robusto (5” x 54, SRP per cigar is $6.79); Gigante (6” x 60, SRP per cigar is $7.39); Rothschild (4.5” x 50, SRP per cigar is $5.39) and Torpedo (5.75” x 52, SRP per cigar is $6.99).

To create Punch Signature, Master Blender Agustin Garcia and his team kept true to the original Punch blend by using tobaccos from the same countries of origin. Agustin Garcia said, “Punch Signature is inspired by Punch original blend. Think of it as a brother who has a lot of fire in him, but also respects tradition and the family name.”

Development of the Punch Signature blend began in 2012. Agustin and his team found a small batch of Ecuadoran tobacco they wanted to use, but had to ensure that they would have enough to make Punch Signature a full-time addition to Punch. They worked with a grower to cultivate a special Ecuadoran Corojo wrapper exclusively for this cigar. The wrapper is related to the original Cuban Corojo seed. The tobacco was aged, sorted and prepared for launch three years later.

First and foremost, a little background on these cigars with the “Rare Corojo” double band. These smokes are released each year in March and are only available until the annual supply is depleted, which is why they are given the secondary "Rare" band. I was able to pick mine up while in Chicago over the July 4th holiday weekend and the cigar shop I was in had ample supply. Also, the Punch Rare Corojo Champion may appear to be a maduro cigar but I assure you it is not. The company brands this cigar as a natural but it is one of the darker naturals I have come across.

Thanks to General Cigar Co. for providing this sample for review!

This is a new cigar out from General Cigar Co. that is made with a proprietary Connecticut grown corojo wrapper, rather than the Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper that is on the regular Rare Corojo line. Speaking of that, I've never understood why the regular Punch Rare Corojo's are even called that since they don't have a corojo wrapper, but I suppose that isn't relevant to this review...

The Punch Uppercut line is the latest release from the General Cigar Company. This cigar features an Ecuadorian grown Sumatra wrapper and filler tobacco from Nicaragua. The binder is grown on the island of Ometepe which is located off the coast of Nicaragua. The volcanic soil of the island produces very rich tobacco.

Today's review comes courtesy of Stephen who generously offered to contribute. Thank you, Stephen!

This is a review of just one cigar. It was given to me as a gift from Ted the owner of Big Jack's Cigars in Boothbay Harbor, ME. I always stop by there to say hi when I am in Boothbay Harbor and I recommend you do too. There is no lounge or anything. Just Ted who is passionate about his cigars and he carries some nice bottles of wine as well.

Ted told me Punch created this cigar to be a competitor to the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story. It is a member of the “original” Honduran Punch Family with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, a Connecticut binder, and filler tobaccos from Honduras.

It's been resting in my humidor for about a month.
